Buddy: the Activity Tracking, Geolocating, Next-Gen Collar for Your Pet

A bit over the top? Decide for yourself by watching the video.

With humans being able to enjoy all the health benefits of activity tracking since the recent boom in fitness-centric technology in the past few years, it was only a matter of time before someone thought of bringing the same technology to man’s best friend. Enter Buddy, a next-generation dog collar jam-packed with all the tech your dog would ever need. In addition to fitness tracking and GPS tracking, Buddy also integrates LED lighting for night visibility, a dog food calorie counter, location-based alerts for when fellow four-legged friends are out and about, and the ability to link up with smart appliances such as smart locks, thermostats and lighting, which can be set to self-adjust to the needs of your dog. Scheduled to ship in August 2016, fund the Kickstarter by clicking here.
